The shoot I had been dreaming about. For months, I sat with an idea in my head of doing a styled shoot that encompassed all of my favorite things. A representation of my brand and who I am. From the color palette, to the gowns, to the smallest details, I had planned something that brought […]

Carrie and Peter’s wedding took place on what turned out to be a beautiful Spring day. After days of rain, the clouds moved away, letting the sun peak through. They got ready separately, but both within the walls of the home they share, a personal touch that always warms my heart. Portraits were taken around […]

Carrie and Peter | Wedding at The Stanley Event Space

May 21, 2022

Nothing rocked me like the loss of my own identity after becoming a mother. I had spent years learning who I was. Making mistakes and learning from them.

A-Vent Space – Vignette III | Maggie and Kelly

June 27, 2021

Tucked away in its own little space of northern Kansas City, the Chateau Avalon hotel sits alongside its newest companion, the A-Vent Space. A structure comprised of steel and glass, surrounded by vast emerald green trees. While the architecture lends itself to that of a European getaway, the midwest air was warm and humid. Touches […]

A-Vent Space – Vignette II | Monica and Blake

June 27, 2021

This eclectic-boho shoot boasted with warmth; the warmth of the color palette, the warmth of the air, the warmth of smooth bourbon. Accents of tangerine and cactus were a nod to the heat of summer, while touches of mahogany and scarlet brought notes of cozy autumn days. Newly-engaged couple, Isaac and Darrell, lingered by the […]
